October 18-22, 2021
Words of Wisdom
"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again."
Passing through life often seems like a race to get everything done by bedtime. In our hurry, we may be crabby to others, miss important dates, or overlook the needs of those closest to us. It's all unintentional, but nevertheless, feelings can be hurt and relationships damaged.
It's important to remember that we will not pass this way again. Relationships matter. Don't neglect what's really important in life by deferring kindness.

Daily Health Screening
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we need to be extra careful about spreading any illnesses at school. Parents should do a health screening of their children each morning before school. If students are not feeling well or have symptoms of any illness, please keep them home for the day. If students exhibit any of the symptoms of COVID-19 listed below, they must be tested for COVID-19 before returning to school. COVID-19 symptoms include:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
